Summary, etc.:
Drawing on a wealth of primary and secondary source materials this book describes the distinctive nature of modernity's sonic cultures, arguing controversially that they are not reducible to sound alone. In fact, they encompass representations of sound in 'other' media as well, particularly within literature yet also within cinema and painting.
